Really liked it. Glad to see the Fed embarking on a non-political advertising campaign. Well done.

All are great. Simple, classy, good production values. Should make everyone think of that special teacher in their lives. Absence of a political viewpoint is key. Well done!

Made me 'tear up!' Lovely ad. (The new teacher one.)

I like this little story. Fantastic to focus the campaign on the value of teaching.

Great to see this advertisement. My first day as a teacher started with a puncture and the school clerk thought I was a late arriving new student but I soon settled in and loved the job.

Good idea behind ad but the teacher doesn't introduce himself to parent or child!!! Any random can get a tub to carry! Other than that ok.

Good ads! I have been very concerned that the federation is only talking about what policies mean for teachers. Not what it means for kids. Parents will sit up and take notice if we show them what the new policies mean for the kids ie Behaviour mgt teams disbanded, reading recovery gone.
Well done.

As a teacher for 31 years I too believe we make a difference, BUT i have not once arrived as the kids do or left at the same time as them! Isn't this what the community already thinks of us...this won't help perceptions at all, only confirm misunderstandings.

I generally agree with the aims of the advertisement, but I think the BEST thing we could do for our profession is to improve our personal professionalism. In such a short ad, the details are important. I am/have been a young male teacher, and the best thing I ever did was wear a tie. I know it's not the 1950s, but the character in the ad needs a shave, a tidy of his hair, and would do himself an enormous favour by simply wearing a tie. Public perception is hard to change, so we need to make a particular effort if we wish to change it.
